Though You Stumble

Though You Stumble


Though you stumble refuse to fall

Beneath a sinful load

Deny not God, nor Heavens’ call

Along life’s twisted road


Accept instead the grace of Christ

Receive His perfect love

Believe God’s Lamb was sacrificed 

To bring His flock above


Play not a fool nor act the clown

Take heed in truth be wise

For Satan pulls blind people down

But Jesus opens eyes


Look unto Him who bore your pain

To Him who’ll give you life

Accept The Truth be born again

And end all foolish strife


If doubt remains take up and read

God’s Word He meant for you

Receive it as His precious seed

That grows to life anew


Personally! All these things I’ve done

So now can testify

Heaven is reached but through God’s Son

The living Christ on high


The same who’s voice I’ve truly heard

Who’s love is now my own

Who’s given me His Holy Word

To see my Father’s throne


Of self I’d dare not say these things

If self my soul could save

But through God’s Lamb on eagle wings

I’ll surely flee the grave…..

About the Poet
I never wrote a word of poetry in my life. Till the day Jesus took my hand and touched my soul.....I invite your response. However most poems are not about me! Very few are. But the feed-back good, bad or indifferent is always desired. Not meant to offend, but I write about many things in many a guise. Of life, death, lost, found, saved, backsliders, new comers, repenting souls, doubting hearts, heathens, Christians, fire, water, Satan's daughter, wallowing in sin, saved, made sound walking in Light, graceful righteous. Suffering, ecstatic, bored, excited, sad, delighted, Sick, well, lame, able, living, dying, etc. etc. etc. Writing about anything, everything and everyone as the spirit leads. All meant to reveal, waken, revive, encourage, shame, help. Gladden, pick up, exalt, portrait, liberate. Again over 99% of my work is not about me. Although at times I write as though I were or am. Speaking e.g. in the first person. This is quite common even in the bible itself. Prophets speak of themselves, then God speaks, again the prophet, then God......Quite often it's difficult to distinguish whom it is that at any given time is speaking or narrating.
